谁希望中东和平?

在六日战争四十年以后,以色列人和巴勒斯坦人之间的和平似乎依然像过去一样遥不可及。以色列依然拒绝接受新的巴勒斯坦民族团结政府作为谈判对手,因为哈马斯是那个政府的一部分。这个看上去有些自相矛盾的事情的原委是什么呢?还存在希望吗?

巴勒斯坦政府只是在行政上是联合的,但是在政治上却是分裂的。巴勒斯坦人的政府有着两种政策。在政治上,巴勒斯坦总理哈尼亚依然拒绝承认以色列以及尊重已有的协议。他宣称他支持继续进行所有形式的抵抗。对于一个持这样立场的人,有谁能保证他会以真诚的努力去达成一项和平协议呢?

这正是欧盟在争论是否应该恢复对巴勒斯坦权力机构的经济援助时应该问自己的问题。欧盟应该明确地向哈马斯表明它不会资助恐怖活动,也不会援助拒绝达成和平。如果巴勒斯坦人想得到欧洲的帮助,对此我完全表示支持,那么它必须准备好达成和平,而不是破坏和平。不管怎样,应该反对的不是作为一个政党的哈马斯,而是哈马斯遵循的政治和政策。我们对哈马斯并不抱有成见,我们反对的是它好战的政策,这种政策在它加入政府后依然没有改变。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
